Hey everyone.  I have crohn's disease and i've had it for 7 years.  I'm currently on cimzia and apriso.  back in august of 08 i had a small bowel ressection with a temp ileostomy.  I was reversed in october of 08.  Since i've had surgery i've been feeling alright.  in june i had my first partial small bowel obstruction.  excrutiating pain and vomiting.  yesterday at 2:00 i started to get these really bad contraction like waves of pain across my bellybutton area.  then the neasea started.  couldn't eat, walk or anything.  all i could do was writhe in pain.  finally at 8:00 i decided to the er.  while i was getting ready to go i had three bowel movement and the pain subsided but the neasea remained.   now all night long i've had d and i can't go no more than an hour without having d.  i am still having the pain across my bellybutton allbeit not as severe as last night.  do you think it could be a blockage of some sort should i see the doc or see if it passes?  thanks

Also sometimes the bowel can get twisted. I third agree that you need to get ahold of your doc or go to the ER. Good luck!
